Labradoodles are very sociable dogs and enjoy playing interacting with the all members of the family. Puppies will play and play and all of a sudden usually after 15-20mins for young puppies., and all of sudden find quiet spot to rest. Please supervise your children as they often are unaware they are hyping up the puppy. Ask them to offer toys that are great for puppies to chew on like teething Kong’s and rope toys, when they are playing to hard, this will distract them and help them to settle. Its important to teach your puppy that you like gentle play.
Your puppy will get enough exercise initially through play. Your puppy will have learnt how to cope with a lead and collar by this time.
Vaccination and Exercise
When your puppy’s’ vaccination schedule is complete, commence walking your puppy regularly before a meal. I’m not a fan of dog parks as usually dogs of all ages and sizes are off leash; this can be very scary for your puppy who is learning bout the world. If you intend to use the dog park, visit when there are only few dogs and the owners appear to have control of their dog. Please socialise your dog gradually so he has the social confidence to to meet new dogs in a new environment
